For hundreds of years, various kinds of procedures have been cultivated to make it much simpler for quilters to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these strategies is called paper piecing, which is regularly adopted to combine the intricate corners of the Mariner's Compass quilts
. Paper piecing, as it name illustrates, uses a specific paper pattern on which the cloth fragments are stitched. The pattern directs the seamstress to accurately sew the pieces together so that the finished top will lie out evenly. Methodologies of this sort as this are a fantastic aid to our quilters!
